Part 2

Here is the passage that Bill quoted in the class, the book it came from, and where you can find the book:

  • When the wind comes to sparse bamboo, the bamboo doesn’t keep the sound after the wind has passed. When geese cross a cold pond, the pond doesn’t retain their reflection after the geese have gone. Similarly, the minds of enlightened people become manifest when events occur and then become empty when the events are over. 
  • That’s it! A wonderful observation — and clear evidence that mine is not an “enlightened” mind, since it clearly did not remain empty…

    Thx for the follow-through, Patrick.
